About this project

Imagine if you will...

You're fifty light years from earth, with no way home and with no one to talk to except a cheeky computer. What would you do?

Answer: Open an intergalactic Bar & Grill.

And that's just what Marie Davis did.

Marie is thrust into a world completely and literally alien from her own. With no one to rely on, she makes the best of her situation and using her own inner strength and intelligence carves out a life for herself on her own terms. 

Marie's Zero Gravity Bar & Grill is a sometimes funny sometimes serious re-examination of a "Stranger in a Strange Land"  as seen through the eyes of Douglas Adams  with a little Firefly & Red Dwarf thrown in for good measure.

So...

That's the basic gist of Marie's Zero Gravity Bar & Grill -- The Web Series, which is the brainchild of Charlie Spickler (Me) and Meredith Schwartz (not me) and starring Amber Benson (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Killing Jar, Drones) as Marie and Jonathan Woodward (Angel, Firefly, Buffy, Drones) as Sam the Intersteller collector of junk, scrap, odds, ends and middles. 

The Crew:

Producer: E.F. Morrill - Chronicles of Bob, Accidental Heroes, The Price of Art, Not So Super.

Director & Writer: Charlie Spickler - Chronicles of Bob, Accidental Heroes, The Price of Art, Red Legged Devils, A Question of time, Atlantic City Serenade.

Writer: Meredith Schwartz - Chronicles of Bob, Accidental Heroes, 

Production Manager: Chris Barra - Chronicles of Bob, Accidental Heroes, 

DP: Steven Gladstone - Hellion, The Song, Shadow Boxing, Daydreamed, Pain Medicine, 18 and out.

Production Designer: Salvatore Tagliarino - Chronicles of Bob, Numerous Stage and screen credits.

Associate Producer: Amber Benson - Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Killing Jar, Drones, Author of the "Ghosts of Albion" Series.

Marie's Zero Gravity Bar & Grill is an empowering series focusing on a woman who takes no guff from anyone and follows her heart and head. If in the event we do not raise all or any of the funding through Kickstarter this project will still get made regardless of what we need to do to get it done. The cast and crew are wholly committed to this project and we will see it through.

This is a full blown web series which we hope to eventually turn into a cable network series, so while the budget is not an " industry standard budget" it is still quite considerable. The money raised will go to building sets, unique, original costumes and props as well as minimal pay for cast and crew. We have squeezed the entire 14 eight minute episodes into a two week shoot to keep costs down and accommodate our actors and crew.
